POETRIES OF REALITY

Talamanca

by David Marino, 2020 (Costa Rica)

United Kingdom | 21 min | Original Version, English Subtitles

A sensory immersion in the heart of lush nature, Talamanca documents the daily life of Justo, a farmer, father and adventurer of the Bribi people – an Indigenous nation located in the Cordillera de Talamanca in Costa Rica. With this poetic and intimate short film, reality takes on another dimension, where the silences and moments of life become strikingly beautiful and sensitive, while offering a reflection on environmental conservation.

 

Davide Marino is an anthropologist and filmmaker who captures the wonders of the real and of the everyday through cinematographic devices. He produced this film as part of his doctoral research in Visual Anthropology at the University of Manchester’s Granada Centre.

 

Talamanca has been screened in numerous festivals since 2020, such as the Screen Culture International Film Festival, the Beyond Film Festival Climate Change, and the Mimesis Documentary Festival, and has won 4 awards, including a special mention at the Muestra de Antropología Audiovisual de Madrid.

Following the screenings, a workshop-style discussion will be held with the director of The Fourfold, Alisi Telengut.
